Is media bias to blame for lack
of Gosnell coverage?
Or something far more banal?

Washington Post, by Paul Farhi

Original Article

Posted By:mitzi, 4/14/2013 10:03:20 PM

Is media bias to blame for lack of Gosnell coverage? Or something far more banal? The trial of Philadelphia doctor Kermit Gosnell would seem to have all the elements of a spectacular news story: shocking allegations, horrifying visuals, sympathetic victims. Yet until late last week, much of the national media was silent as testimony about Gosnell’s alleged “house of horrors” abortion clinic rolled out. Much of the media attention outside Philadelphia, in fact, centered on how little media attention the story was receiving outside Philadelphia.

Comments:
WaPo found some column space in the Style section for a piece that basically points a finger at conservative news outlets for lack of coverage. Remember the days when newspapers were looking for scoops?

It´s Left-wing bias with a large over-lay of cowardice.

They were killing beautiful, innocent, black babies and have the nerve to use their mantra "It´s for the Children" when they enact their filthy ordinances and bogus laws to control our lives.

The stench has reached heaven and the GOD they so desperately been trying to kill will not be mocked. It´s coming, wait for it.

The libtard drive-by media won´t print any stories on Gosnell because it definitely goes against their crusade of infanticide. When Barry´s Death Panels kick in for senior citizens, they´ll ignore those stories too because it goes against their crusade of eugenics.

There is no doubt whatsoever that the media are 97% liberal, enthusiastically support abortion, and are totally ideologocally driven. Conservatives have known this for a very long time. What is really banal here is their phony shock at the accusations.

It´s even worse for the WaPo and the NYC papers as "news" that happens in Philadelphia is generally considered "regional news" since the cities are so close together and easily reached via train.

Hitler would be astonished at how willingly our "free press" tows the leftist line...I mean it´s not even propaganda by "nationalizing" the media...they have literally "nationalized" themselves...there´s not even a use for PBS. It´s completely irrelevant.

Gosnell is obviously black and, by his practice of killing babies (both unborn and unborn, is obviously politically a far left liberal. MSM views him as "one of theirs" and would never participate in exposing him. So they cover for him by ignoring the trial. To do otherwise might hurt their "womens´ choice" agenda.

And of course, blame others. ´If they don´t cover it first, how are we supposed to know about it?´ That is a outright admission that journalists don´t do their jobs any more.

I was watching MSNBC´s Morning Joe this morning looking for any coverage on this trial. Joe did three segments on the Gosnell trail and encouraging people to read the grand jury report!!!!!!!
He interviewed a local reporter and a pro choice ex-governor who served during that time period, and said the laws in place were adequate but there was not enough oversight.
He gave details. He compared it to New Town. Joe compared this 30 week baby that was killed, to his own son who was a premature child born in an earlier week of development.
It was a beautiful sight to see. A friend had alerted Joe Scarborough to the case.

FTA: Moreover, some commentators have pointed out, greater media attention to the trial might help, rather than hurt, abortion rights advocates. They say the graphic testimony about illegal late-term abortions, unlicensed staff and shockingly unsanitary procedures and conditions at Gosnell’s Women’s Medical Society clinic strengthens the case for keeping abortion safe, legal and affordable

Its not safe, women are dying and/or being rushed to ERs. It isn´t legal to kill a baby born alive. And it certainly isn´t affordable to undergo an abortion that delivers a baby that was poisoned in-utero.

"Bias" is a soft, useless word. Saying the media suffers bias misses the point entirely. Protecting Gosnell is just one of thousands of protectorate mafia media events. Most media is controlled by new world order dominating forces. Elegant Diane Sawyer isn´t free to say whatever good thoughts may remain in her pre-brainwashed mind. There are rules in this unionized mafia, rules you do not break. Never discuss the birth certificate issue, never discuss the beautifully established American culture of private gun ownership, never discuss the arming of schools, never discuss fast & furious, our government giving guns to Mexican drug cartels, never discuss Holder supported vote fraud, never discuss tossing UN out of New York, never discuss chaos in gun controlled cities versus relative safety of gun carry cities, of all mind altering products, never discuss no withdrawal goodness of the natural plant, cannabis, never show 24/7 fiat dollar printing, never show disaster that is forced medicine obamaskare. There are endless, prohibited topics on brainwash media/press. Our saving grace is this right here, internet, New Media (and new world order/UN is trying to close this down, too). Not covering Gosnell´s accused crimes is just one of many censorings by statist powers. It ain’t bias. What remains, of all of TV´s lovely and charming Diane Sawyers, is robot power controlled, just like Mr Soetero.

I suspect this clinic and the one in Delaware are the tip of the iceberg when it comes to unsanitary conditions. Why? Because abortionist tend to be at the bottom of the barrel in terms of medical prestige and there are darn few negative consequences for sloppiness. The inspectors are afraid to complain too loudly and the customers who are injured or who get infected are not likely to sue.

This is ironic because when abortion was illegal those physicians who would preform one sub rosa had to be gosh darn careful to get everything perfect. If they didn´t they could lose their license and go to jail.

Why you use the word "bias" describing today´s American mainstream media? Use the right words - it is leftist propaganda machine who works hand in hand with leftist anti-capitalist, anti-freedom government! And think where it gets its financing from: all the newspapers (they give them practically for free to us), local TV, Google, Facebook...
Of course from the leftist government who, by the way owns the banking in the country!

Gosnell was cutting off the hands and feet of babies and keeping them as souvenirs. The Washington Post doesn´t care.

Gosnell was delivering babies alive, then holding them aloft and cutting their necks. The Washington Post doesn´t care.

Gosnell was offering superior treatment and facilities to white women while black women were shunted off to filthy, bloody, unsterile rooms with cat feces on the floor. The Washington Post doesn´t care.

Why doesn´t the Washington Post care?

Because reporting on this would harm the Left´s political narrative.

Similarly, the Washington Post refuses to report on Barack Obama´s arming of Mexican drug cartels because stories about "Operation Fast & Furious" harm the Left´s political narrative. So what, if three hundred Mexican citizens have been murdered thanks to Barack Obama and Eric Holder? The Washington Post doesn´t care.

This is the same newspaper which wrote an editorial explaining why they WEREN´T going to cover the New Black Panther voter intimidation scandal, "despite thousands of phone calls and e-mails expressing intense reader interest."

These people aren´t journalists. They´re cheerleaders for the CommieCrat Party, and telling the TRUTH is the LEAST of their concerns.

This was allowed to happen all these 30 years because of Affirmative Action. AA´s are allowed to do much outside the norm because no one has the bells to report on it as they could be called ´raaaaacist´ and also because this was done mostly on poor black women. I scanned the Grand Jury Report and I´ll tell you, this whole this makes me sick to my stomach. Those poor ladies who had to go through this. The black community needs to do something about the young men (or just men) who plant the seed and leave somone else to take care of the problem. And then to top it off, we see the picture of the EMPTY benches in the courtroom where reporters should be sitting to get information to report on this atrocity. Dear Lord, where are we?

When you acknowledge some seven bloody murders or so, then a logical conclusion would lead to 38 million more. Folks meet your everyday liberal... a mass murderer. Another description would be killings for convenience.

Do you really wonder why the MSM ignored this story. Because these can´t be swept under the rug.

On Thursday, Brendan Eich, who has helped develop some of the web’s most important technologies, resigned under pressure as chief executive of Mozilla, the maker of the popular Firefox web browser, just two weeks after taking the job.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.

Less than 16 hours after Chelsea Clinton announced she was pregnant, a lot of major news outlets started staring into the crystal ball of Chelsea’s womb, wondering what this currently floating zygotic multicellular being meant for the prospects of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, which is also a floating, zygotic, multicellular being. Their answer: The immaculately conceived Clinton child could mean everything. And no, it’s not just the fact that having a grandchild could be personally fulfilling to Hillary and Bill (mazel tov, by the way), or that a cute baby would be a sweet cherry on top of Hillary’s already
